Trevor Hogg chats with Ales Kot about comics and the creation of Edward Zero...
“What is an artist?” asks Ales Kot. “If anything done sufficiently well is art, then I certainly come from a family of artists. My mother was a social worker and became an interior designer; her mother worked at the post office most of her life and her father worked as a steel worker, an army specialist, and a truck driver. My father worked as a miner, then sold steel and then built up a soccer club; his father worked on a high position in a steel factory and taught physics and mathematics while his mother worked in a store selling food most of her life.

And fresh off three new additions to "Ant-Man," the comic book studio has booked their bad guy for "The Avengers: Age Of Ultron."

The actor joins franchise newbies Elizabeth Olsen, Aaron Taylor-Johnson and James Spader in the Joss Whedon-directed movie, with of course, all the other Avengers expected to return. »

For Captain Walton (Sutherland) and the crew of a weather-beaten ship stranded in the icy sea, the answer follows their rescue of a scientist close to death, frozen in fear, and insane with dire warnings. Victor Frankenstein (Newman) has a story to tell—a story as chillingly real as the tortured howls emanating from the Arctic fog and as timeless as the need to be loved.
Made for the Hallmark Channel back in 2004, this version of Frankenstein comes from director Kevin Connor who brought the classic Edgar Rice Burroughs novels, At the Earth’s Core and The Land that Time Forgot, to the big screen in the 70s and is once again based on the classic Mary Shelley tale, only »
